Reliving Rockdale's Past through a Vintage Clothing Display

Due to the outpouring of local support, the Rockdale Historical Society proudly presented its latest display: Vintage Clothing from Rockdale's Past. Under the direction of current society president, Joyce Dalley, a spectacular display of early day clothing memorabilia was put together and the doors opened to the public. The vintage clothing display, shown during the months of March and April of 2010, brought back a flood of early day Rockdale memories and was one of the most successful historical displays to date.
